Scott Amendola, who has toured with Charlie Hunter, T.J. Kirk, Madeleine Peyroux and many others, presents his third CD as a leader, featuring guitarists Nels Cline of Wilco and Jeff Parler of Tortoise. Also featured is violinist Jenny Scheinman. Believe is a strong statement from the drummr of Nels Cline Singers

"Amendola's ability to find the groove inside any context, and an attention to detail in drum tuning that makes him both inherently flexible and distinctive, have also found him in demand outside the jazz arena with artists like Kelly Joe Phelps and Carla Bozulich. If anything, Believe reflects Amendola's broad stylistic reach and his penchant for the lyrical simplicity of folk and alternative country music. 'Buffalo Bird Woman' starts out with a burst of noise and an impression of freer things to come, but Amendola's backbeat soon emerges, driving a countrified Neil Young-informed melody by Scheinman that's supported by Parker's gritty tremolo guitar and Cline's lap steel. 'If Only Once' find everyone digging deep into an achingly beautiful ballad where time alternates between gentle fluidity and a more established but equally graceful pulse. Scheinman's rich melodicism is gently bolstered by Cline and Parker, who combine lush harmonies with vivid colours.
